LP360 Under the Hood – The Conflation Point Cloud Task

In the January issue of GeoCue News, we discussed the new Point Cloud Task (PCT) overhaul that we released in LP360 2013.2. The focus of the last article was on the new Input/Output Manager (IOM) for setting the inputs and outputs of the various PCTs that LP360 provides.
In this month’s article I will describe the new implementation of the Z Conflation PCT. Z conflation allows you to add elevation (Z) values to a point, line or polygon feature. Currently these features must be represented by 2D or 3D Shape files. In a future version of LP360, we will extend this to GeoDatabase features.
